vehicle overturned. because it is not on the span it is backing up traffic because the traffic sensors are updating. you do not see the backup because take a look at the bridges span however it is clear. in fact if anything this will help the traffic because you are not able to get to the bridge because of the industrial backup. try to get to the toll plaza. the bay bridge west palm looking decent. and the metering lights the west-bound for the bridge looking decent. from marin county and also both lanes on each side looking decent. >> a developing story with castro valley investigators are looking at is suspicious deaths. we promised that would have a live report and will tran has the latest.
